Three Pears began with the excitement of searching for the first ‘big’ baby toy. As a new parent, designer Andrea Pearson was on a mission to find the perfect plaything for her then 3 month old son Harry. Eyeing the limited options available she was inspired to design a toy that would bridge the gap between the beautiful cradles for newborns and the many stylish designs of toys for toddlers who could walk. The idea for the Bobbin was born!
To turn the idea into reality she sought out help from a widely knowledgeable resource – her family. Together with her sister Erin - whose degree in Environmental Science informs the sustainable and green aspects of the company, and her father Ken – an industrial design teacher turned entrepreneur, they founded Three Pears Inc. Andrea’s Master of Architecture and years of experience in the field of design inspire the minimal form and refined details that define the companies aesthetic. And not to be left out, her mother Helen, an educator with advanced early childhood development training, ensures all designs provide age appropriate learning opportunities.
We think it’s important that products for children are responsibly manufactured. To us that means using materials from sustainable resources, manufacturing locally and ethically, and creating beautiful products meant to last a lifetime.
Love everything you give your children!
